Description Andrew Cagney 2005-11-21 17:33:20 UTC
There's a race condition when detaching simultaneous to a clone vis:
- frysk sends detach to Task object
- Task object receives detach, sends stop to kernel task
- Task object receives clone
At this point the Task-object can detach, but the clone cannot:
- the clone _probably_ hasn't yet stopped; ptrace.detach(clone) will fail
- the owning proc doesn't know about clone; so won't wait for it to detach

2005-11-21  Andrew Cagney  <cagney@redhat.com>

        * Proc.java (performTaskAttachCompleted(Task,Task)): Add
        * ProcState.java: Handle performTaskAttachCompleted.
        * TaskState.java: In .detaching, when a clone, notify owning
        process of the clone Task.  Replace .initial with .mainState,
        .unattachedState, and .clonedState.  Replace .Stating states with
        .Start states.  Simplify.
        * Task.java: Update.
